The Conference of the Women Wing of the Unitarian Union under the banner of the Seng Kynthei Unitarian Union came to a close last Sunday December 19, at the Unitarian Church, Tynring. It is the 12 edition of the conference which was organized once in two years. Dr. Creamlimon Nongbri the Secretary of the Women’ wing said “the Conference was very warm and solemn. It was well attended and it was grand as we had all the Officials of the Unitarian Union, the Women's wing and the Youth Wing with all the Ministers and Asst.Ministers and a big attendance from all the churches in Khasi and Jaintia Hllls.. The services were very inspiring and for the first time we had all women participated in all the order of services including speakers, moderators”. It is indeed an all women show but the highlight of the programe was the presentation of the award to kong Moltifera Rani the founder secretary of the Seng Kynthei UUNEI who served the women group for a record 12 years since its inception. The award was handed over to kong Molti by Rev. C. Lyngdoh. Kong Mol as she is lovingly called by those close to her is a tacher by profession but she has immensely contributed towards the progress of the Unitarian Union.  Another unique thing about this particular women conference is that women groups from Jowai, Madan Laban, Puriang also presented their special number during the services. The women from Jowai with their traditional fineries add color to the grand show.
